WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - Wyoming Public Schools will ask voters again in to approve a multi-million dollar bond, some of which would go toward improving safety.
The Board of Education voted Monday to present voters in August with the same $53 million bond proposal that failed on May 7.
The money would add classroom space to nearly all of the district's schools, build a new addition to the high school and extensively renovate the rest of that building and athletic facilities. It would also create secure entrances at every school.
School leaders say the money is necessary to accommodate the number of students in the district.
The school board has scheduled a special meeting for Thursday, May 16, at 8 p.m. in the board room to discuss the issue. The board is hoping to hear from people who both voted yes and no in last week's election.
Police are investigating a report of a home invasion, but say there are inconsistencies.
